You will be able to share how you feel in a safe place, and get support and comfort from others who have been there.

Our weekly meetings combine group membership activities with small group discussions led by trained facilitators. There is no fee to attend.

** Please remember the ground rules ** We know everyone is anxious to see and hear everyone, but please remember to mute yourself if you are not actually speaking. If you are calling in to the meeting please use the "mute" button on your phone. Please refrain from interjecting comments while someone is speaking, like “Gee”, “Wow”, "Oh My”. They do not help and they take up valuable time. If there is background noise or distraction we WILL mute you. Please be considerate.
